to north korea to meet with kim jong-un. since then people have dismissed rodman for how little he knew, but as ridiculous as people said his trip was, he did learn a few things about the mysterious north korean dictator. in an interview with "the sun" entitled why i danced with michael jackson with north korean tyrant, he described him as a cool guy who wears everyday, regular clothes and likes music and sports and stuff. we only see him in the military ensemble. the north korean leader likes '80s music which explains the dancing to michael jackson. however, the most revealing detail is what he said about kim jong-un's wife. according to rodman, quote him again, she's a beautiful woman, very elegant and quite tall for a korean, maybe 5'5". she kept talking about their beautiful baby daughter. that is a pretty amazing revelation. we know almost nothing about kim jong-un's wife and the fact that the couple might have a child is a state secret. last year we saw her for weeks and until now some speculated some she was pregnant, some speculated she was not in favor, she dressed too showy. d

the kim jong-un government is looking at some significant financial problems. spee-1 very quickly. north korea has been aggressively exporting monetary nonmonetary goal. if you're trying to tighten up the financial affects against north korea, you need to look at these tradable precious metals as sanction the item. they are typically marked with the north korean emblem. when they're not, the gold can be tested precise as to where its origin emanates from. so you could create a verification compliance that could screen out the gold export which might be generating as much as a billion plus a year for north korea. our estimate 2005 north korea's illicit earnings on october $2,801,000,000,000, and that was overtly -- i think it's increasing. >> thank you for the idea, dr. asher. that's a good one. we would go to mr. marino. >> thank you, chairman. good afternoon, gentlemen and thank you for being here. over here. first of all let me say that i personally did not consider a retired basketball player showing up at his own pr promotion in a wedding dress a series credible ambassador representi
